ARLINGTON, Texas Texas Rangers leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler was out of the lineup again Saturday because of bruised ribs.
Kinsler didn't start Saturday either but was used as a pinchrunner late in the game.

ARLINGTON, Texas Texas right-hander Colby Lewis had no issues during his bullpen session Friday at Rangers Ballpark and is on track for a rehab start Monday in Frisco.
Lewis has made one rehab start but had his second one pushed back because of some inflammation in his right triceps.

Thursday’s Detroit Tigers-Texas Ranger’s game in Texas had the potential to feature a pitching duel for the ages.
Unfortunately for Detroit however, their resident ace, Justin Verlander, wasn’t able to fulfill his end of the deal. Lasting just over two innings, Verlander allowed eight earned runs
Ian Kinsler is generally a master on the bases. 160 stolen bases in his career and only 33 caught stealing. He even has a +39.4 value as a baserunner throughout his career, according to Fangraphs. But this season his baserunning value is -0.9. I’m guessing all of the negative points came on the embarrassing slide seen above.
After singling to lead off the bottom of the first for...
ARLINGTON, Texas While some people may be concerned about how the 130-pitch outing by Yu Darvish in his last start will impact him Tuesday, Darvish isn't one of them.

"I didn't have much fatigue after the 130 pitches...
Before going any further, it needs to be said that Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler is a very good baserunner. Over the course of his eight-year career he’s stolen 160 bases and been caught just 33 times for a solid 83 percent success rate. He’s also generally known around baseball as a “heads-up” baserunner, rarely making a miscue or running into a giveaway out.
Looking to kill some time? Stare at the wall or argue about pitch counts. It doesn’t really matter, because each activity will leave you shaking your head when you decide to rejoin society.
Yu Darvish tossed 130 pitches in eight innings against the Tigers on Thursday despite the Rangers leading 10-4. Manager Ron Washington’s decision to leave Darvish in the game for so long has...

It's been awhile since I've seen an "Eephus pitch" thrown at the Major League level but clearly, Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish knows how to use it.
Watch as he delivers a 62-mph pitch past Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera:
